Typhoon “Butchoy” (international name “Nepartak”) is already in southern China, but parts of western Luzon can still expect heavy rains due to the enhanced southwest monsoon or habagat.

According to the 5PM weather bulletin for July 10 of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), monsoon rains will be experienced over the provinces of Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, and Pangasinan. Meanwhile, occasional rains can be expected over CALABARZON, Ilocos region, and Central Luzon. Metro Manila, for its part, can expect cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms.

It states: “Students who are unable to report to class or participate in scheduled activities such as exams due to inclement weather shall be given consideration and be allowed to make up for the missed class or activity.”
